Here's our day at John Dam Plaza supporting the Arc Of Tri Cities "March For Respect". Susan and I arrived just after 11, and most of the gang was already there. Seems like our guys got in and took over getting popups ready. I hadn't hardly stopped and they had Jose's out of my truck and were getting it up! Go Putters! The crew made one great impression on the Arc staff. Donna was thrilled with all the help!! We have already been invited back for next year! My very personal thanks to all of you for coming out. I'm proud to be part of groups like the Putters and ORVTW!!
The roll call for the day:
Dave & Sue (Grumpy)
Lee, Chris, and The Jeeper Chicks (iaccocca)
Curtis & Brian R (Brian is an Arc volunteer. Way cool!) (oddball)
Steve R (Sceaming Toylet)
Dave C (TJDave)
Rob L (Lud)
Jose, Sveta, Izzy, and Mom (Roman)
Ryan & Danielle M (White Trash & Peanut)
Danny & Ria (Reco Very & Reco's Gurl)
(Kerry from Arc wanted to see what it was like to play with the cool kids, so she parked her Jeep with us. She needs some inducement to get going on that critter)
The preliminary questimate for the days attendance was right at 600 people!! Pretty much a success, I'd say!!
